Shamim's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase cutters, tape and plastic covers in large quantity.
Ms. Shamim is a 43-year-old married woman. She has been providing bookbinding services in her community for the past many years. She takes orders from the nearby schools and the people of her community. In this way, she earns a reasonable amount of income to fulfill the basic needs of her four children. To cope with the orders without fail, she applied a loan of 30,000 PKR (Pakistan rupees) to purchase cutters, tape and plastic covers in large quantities. She is in her fourth loan cycle with a good repayment history. She expects a boost in her earnings and wishes to spend the part of the profits on the betterment of her family members.
